Yesterday was fun skiing on most parts of the mountain with 10 to 15cm of fresh, marginal visability and not too much wind. The top gates were shut due to low visability and wind slaps that risk sliding. Around lunch time, the winds started to pick up slowing down or closing some of the lifts. The winds kept getting stronger and by the evening, the town of Hirafu was in a snow storm with wind drifts starting to cover cars.

The storm has only gained strength through the night. The town woke up this morning to Siberian conditions, the wind howling, trees shaking, piles of snow drifts everywhere and all lifts shut except the beginner family lift which has just opened.

The Avalanche report states, "Extreme avalanche hazard in all area today.
The northerly wind that picked up yesterday morning has kept blowing overnight at 20+m/s with a lot snow fall. The slopes were already very unstable yesterday afternoon and are even worse today as a heavy wind-blown snowdrift has kept developing on top of already unstable layer."
